“Today, due to another provocative Russian shelling, the last power transmission line connecting the station to the energy system of Ukraine was damaged. Again – this is the second time – due to Russian provocation, the Zaporizhzhia station was one step away from a radiation disaster” – he noted.

Zelensky noted that the fact of Russian shelling right now, on the eve of the conclusions of the IAEA inspection that visited the station, eloquently demonstrates that Russia is indifferent to the conclusions of the IAEA, the opinion of the international community, Russia is only interested in a nuclear terrorist attack on the station.

“This can be corrected only by strengthening sanctions, only by officially recognizing Russia as a terrorist state – at all levels. Ukraine has a very clear, transparent and honest position: while we controlled the station, there was no threat of a radiation disaster. As soon as Russia came, the worst scenario imaginable immediately became possible. This requires an international response – from the UN to every normal state.” – summed up the president.

It will be recalled that on September 5, as a result of the fire that occurred at the Zaporizhzhya NPP due to shelling by the occupiers, the last line that connected the plant node with the Ukrainian power system was disconnected. As a result, the sixth power unit was disconnected from the network.

At the same time, on September 5, four of the six members of the International Atomic Energy Agency mission left the Zaporizhzhia NPP. Two experts will continue to work at the station on a permanent basis.

On September 4, the mass media reported that the occupiers had installed multiple rocket launchers near the power units of the Zaporizhzhya NPP and were firing from there.
